I love that quote. It is kinda my personal philosophy and I think it should be yours as well.
This week was packed full of fashion, cooking, and deep thoughts. As you know, last week I was at Alt Summit, so this week was pretty heavy on on that theme. I started the week with a recap of the outfits I wore to the conference and midweek I wrote a post about the 6 things I have learned from Blogging which was inspired by the conference. I started to decorate for Valentine’s Day and did a DIY on how I made some of my Valentine’s decorations. In addition I made a raspberry chocolate trifle in a jar which I think would be the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert, and I even did a bonus fashion post on my love for a particular dress. Finally, I am always looking for new advertisers and I wrote a post about it here.
I know I am a little late on this link, but I thought it was still an interesting read. This article is about what other First Ladies wore to their inauguration balls. Can you guess who wore the dress above? Isn’t it chic?
Moving from the past into the future, I thought this article about futuristic fashion was enlightening. I can’t say I relate to the looks, but I think it is important to look at what others are designing, even if I don’t “like” it because you never know what will inspire you. I subscribe to the theory that future fashion will be based on the past, so if I were to design something “futuristic”I think it would have an Edwardian look to it. One of the designers shown in the article had some interesting architectural structures the models wore as fashion that reminded me quite a bit of bustles, panniers, and the huge collars worn by Queen Elizabeth 1.
Have you ladies seen the work of artist, Berndnaut Smilde? He creates actual clouds in rooms using science and then takes photographs of them. Check it out here.
I am not planning on writing an in depth Alt Summit post because I figure most of my readers don’t come to The Glamorous Housewife for blogging advice, but if you are interested in my experience just let me know in the comments. If enough of you say you want an Alt Summit post then I would be happy to write one. In the meanwhile, you can check out this post which I think is so well written and much more comprehensive than anything I would have to say. Plus the blog, And Then We Saved is all about personal finances, which is something I am passionate about. I think it is incredibly important for every person to have an in depth financial literacy education and I believe should be taught in all our schools. But until that happens you can just read this blog to learn what you need to do with your personal finances.
I leave you this week with something pretty risque. Did you know lady porn is now a thing? Me neither, but it was the hot topic on some of the websites I read. This article is pro lady porn, and this article is not having it. (*There is no actual porn on either of these links) On one hand I think it is good that women are trying to help other women with their sexual prowess, on the other hand I am just fine with a bodice ripping romance novel, thank you very much. Do I really need to see it on my tv/iPad? I mean I already own a well worn DVD of The Notebook, and there is no way any porn actor will be better than my beloved Ryan Gosling. Thoughts?
